Meet owners Mathew and Stephanie McNulty who take pride in bringing some of the freshest, most sustainable, and tasty foods to the West Coast of Florida. Because at Island Fin Poke, it’s all about bringing people together with great food that gets the taste buds going!

Their story is unique as they started their Island Fin Poke Journey through a love of food. They believed in the three pillars of the brand which included a great guest experience, and only the best quality ingredients while bringing the culture of the Ohana to anyone who walks through the door. Those qualities were what led Mathew and Stephanie to open their own franchise and serve the residents of West Florida. 

And bringing that spirit to town didn’t come easy as Mathew and Stephanie had both been working day jobs when they took on the role of running an Island Fin Poke. This meant that they needed to find a fine balance between their work and serving great Island Fin Poke food. With a little quick thinking, they didn’t let their jobs get in the way of their dreams and wound up partnering with Mathew Beck to lead day-to-day operations. 

It turned out to be a perfect fit as Mathew had some great Kentucky roots while also having an extensive background in foodservice. It was the perfect mix to hold down the fort while Mathew and Stephanie worked. With Mathew running the Island Fin Poke floor, you’ll be greeted with the Ohana spirit the second you walk through the door. 

So why is Island Fin Poke work so well under Mathew and Stephanie? One big reason is their strong love for the Saint Peterburg area mixed with their love of the food they serve. For years, they’ve also been raising their twin boys Colman and Dylan meaning that family life plays a huge part in their Saint Petersburg pride. It’s about mixing those sentiments to create the perfect storm of great food and a great experience for anyone who stops into Island Fin Poke. If you haven’t tried the food of the Ohana, then now’s a perfect time!
